Biathlon or Triathlon Wednesday

This morning I ran 3.2 miles (5 kilometers) with my neighbor Danielle. It was by no means easy, but it was a great workout. I felt great when it was over.

On top of that, I bike commuted to work today, which will be a total of about 15 miles after I bike home this evening.

On the face of it, that constitutes a small standard biathlon.

However, if you include tonight’s marathon of aerobic and energetic rock-n-roll music that me and my band GUPPY EFFECT will be playing at the Mason Lounge (406 S. Park St, Madison WI), then I will complete a medium-sized, non-standard triathlon today, where one of the events is face melting, sphincter exploding live rock-n-roll performing.

Trust me, rocking is a workout, at least for GUPPY EFFECT. A lot of bands just stand on stage and don’t move around. Even they are expending energy, though not as much as us. We (and primarily I) move around a lot. The Mason Lounge has a rather small stage and so it won’t be easy to move in the horizontal axis, but we will definitely move in the vertical axis, via small repeating episodes of levitation.

The show is from 8 to 10 PM tonight at the Mason, if you’d like to spectate and be there when I cross the metaphorical “finish line” of today’s alt-triathlon.
